Palm City, Fla., U.S.A. — Sol Inc. (Solar Outdoor Lighting), the world leader in Solar LED outdoor lighting donated five solar powered LED Transit Shelter Security Lights to the City of Port St. Lucie, Florida, to enhance the safety and security of local school area children.

“Many of our employees live in the Port St. Lucie area and we felt compelled to assist the City’s initiative in protecting children who are waiting for a ride to school.” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, chairman of Sol Inc. “We are providing an environmentally friendly lighting system that improves the safety and comfort of the children and can be used to teach them about renewable energy.”

Sol’s most recent donation to the City of Port St. Lucie follows on the heals of recent donations of solar powered lighting systems to the communities devastated by Hurricane Katrina and last year's earthquake in Peru. In this case, the entire Sol team was pleased to have this opportunity to give back to a community much closer to home.

The new shelters are part of the City Council’s ongoing efforts to provide safe areas for schoolchildren as they wait for their buses to get to school.

“The City of Port St. Lucie is extremely appreciative to Sol Inc. for the solar LED lighting donation placed in our new school bus shelters,” said Larry Nadeau, Project Manager Department of Public Works for the City of Port. St. Lucie. “The donated lighting is now providing user safety during the dark hours of early-dawn. The City is fortunate to have a company such as Sol that is willing to unselfishly give of itself in making our community a better place to live.”
